11th Annual Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure Event

It’s time to get walking – anywhere and anytime!

Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure is now virtual and you can participate anytime through October 18.

We are excited to offer this year's Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure as a virtual event.    

Our website is open for registration and we hope you'll plan to join us once again.  

Over the next few months, we are excited to engage with you through various online activities.  Not only will we encourage you and your team to get out and move, but will also provide unique learning opportunities, happy hours, presentations and more.     

We look forward to connecting with you.   

The Walk Ahead Committee

The University of Cincinnati Brain Tumor Center, a regional destination, provides innovative and compassionate care for patients with brain tumors while striving to find cures and discover why these tumors occur. 

Funds from our past events have helped us achieve new benchmarks in brain tumor research.  Each year, this event helps support at least two pilot research grants for our UC researchers who are determined to find a brain tumor cure. 

Several of these projects have led to clinical trials, including one that could change the face of cancer treatment.
